CLASS POEM 



There's a school named Pleasant Gardens, or P. G. otherwise; 

But what'ere the name in the total sum, she's all that the name implies. 

P is for pupils and parents, who are so closely entwined. 

L is for loyal devotion, which always at P. G. you find. 

E is for earnest endeavor, let no one it of us rob. 

A is ardent ambition, we use to accomplish each job. 

S is for studies of all kinds, which are studied in every school. 

A is for athletic and all stars--we have them as a rule. 

N is for neighboring schoolmates, with whom we like to compete. 

T is for teachers and twelve years it took, our education to complete. 

G is for the grades we have achieved, and grit which has made us strong. 

A is for always American, which bids us right each wrong. 

R is the three R's we've mastered, and recreation which was such joy. 

D is for days of Dedication, and the devotion from each girl and boy. 

E is the experience of education, in which we learn to work, share and live. 

N is the never-ending pleasures, our experience in school shall give, 

S is the sum total of our days at P. G. Hi, and success and semi-ending 
as Seniors bid good-by.

CLASS HISTORY 



The fall of 1940 marked the beginning of a new chapter in our lives, 
as we, the present Seniors, began our first school year. W. A. Young 
was our principal. After Miss Wall and Miss Hicks had taught us a few 
lessons in arithmetic and ABC's; we advanced to the second grade, and 
were joined by Trilby Davis and Hazel Poteat. Here we learned more 
difficult problems in arithmetic, and how to read and write. Our third 
year marked the arrival of Donnie McKinney and Paul Brooks. 

In our fir st year of grammar school, the fourth grade, we were faced 
with geography, which then seemed to us a most monotonous subject. In 
our fifth year, we were greeted by Louise Lavender and a new principal, 
Mr. N. F. Shearouse, who replaced Mr. W. A. Young. We were then 
promoted to the sixth grade where we occupied our minds with long tedious 
assignments of history . Barbara Meredith and Betty Reeps were added to 
our enrollment during this year . In the seventh grade we gained another 
member, Joan Rabb. This year marked the beginning of rapid growth 
and much improvement for our school under the pr incipalship of Mr . 
R. L. Wiggins, whocameto us in this year. The last year of grammar 
school was spent in preparing our minds for the high school years which 
were just ahead. 

Here it was! The fall of 1948 and as we present day Seniors made 
our grand entrance into our place as Freshmen at Pleasant Gardens High 
School, we as lower-classmen were fascinated by the superiority of the 
Seniors. As was the custom, Initation Day marked our formal intro- 
duction into this institute of higher learning . Mrs. Wiggins was our home- 
room teacher. 

The fifty-four member s of our class elected as officers: President, 
Shirley Henline; Vice-President, Carolyn Blackwell; Secretary, Eunice 
Burnette; Treasurer, Rowena Grindstaff. 

Tough algebra problems and our debating history Class climaxed our 
Sophomore Year. Miss Conley was our homeroom teacher and our offi- 
cers for this year were : President, Joan Rabb; Vice-President, Eunice 
Burnette; Secretary, Frances Silver; Treasurer, Rex Pope; Reporter, 
Margaret Glenn. 

At last we were Junior s and here we spent a hilarious time preparing 
for our fir st Junior -Senior Banquet, which required much hard work and 
co-operation from the entire class, Patricia Martin and Bob Morgan 
joined us here. We elected as our officers: President, Paul Brooks; 
Vice-President, Roy Dean Comer; Secretary, Frances Silver; Treasurer, 
Margaret Glenn; Reporter, Trilby Davis. Our homeroom teacher this 
year was Mrs. Rowe. 

As the fall of '52 marked the beginning of another school year^we 
stepped into our places as Seniors, the long awaited for position as upper- 
classmen. It was at the first of this year that we fully realized that a 
very important chapter of our lives was being brought to a grand climax 
and that we were standing upon the threshold of another chapter . It is for 
the approaching step out into the world that we are now preparing our- 
selves. We have caught a glimpse of the task that lies before us in try- 
ing to make a place for ourselves in the world and are working toward 
the goal of perfecting ourselves for this task. 

We gained Bobby Queen this year. During the past four years we 
have lost many of our fellow class members but have gained some who 
have helped our class in many ways. 

At this time we Seniors are looking forward to practicing for the Se- 
nior Play and anticipating the many events which accompany Graduation. 




SCHOOL DAYS 



CLASS PROPHECY 



After graduating in May, 1 953, six of us formed theMcPeters All- 
Star Basketball Team; and, since that time, we have become world 
famous. The other members of our team are Trilby Davis, June Shuf- 
ford, Frances Silver, and, of course, our Captain, Ellen McPeters and 
our manager, Margaret Glenn. 

Several months ago, we received an invitation to play the South A- 
meiican Champions in New York City. 

Within a few days we were looking down at the treetops and houses 
below. And who do you think our pilot was? Bob Morgan. The very effi- 
cient stewardess was our old friend, Betty Jean Reel. 

Our first stop was La Guardia Field . As we stepped from the plane, 
whom should we see but Eunice Burnette on her way to Europe to give a 
command performance for the King and Queen. She has become a famous 
television star . 

We called a taxi and can you imagine our surprise when Horace 
Smith came skidding to a stop before us ? He told us of another classmate 
Pat Martin, who is happily married to a famous lawyer, and is making 
quite a name for herself as a fashion model. 

When we arrived at our hotel, the Waldorf-Astoria, Frank Mills 
was diligently scrubbing the plate glass windows in front. Now, don't 
get the idea he's a window washer- -he's the manager of the hotel, just 
out getting his daily exercise. 

While we were in New Y orkjwe decided to go to the Opera. The very 
talented soprano, Betty Patton, was singing in the role of Carmen. 

The next night we went to Madison Square Gardens to watch the wrest - 
ling matches. "Gorgeous Gale Hilton" was in the main event, and she 
displayed an amazing amount of strength in defeating her 300 pound oppo- 
nent. The referee was Carrol Blackwell. 

The next morning when we were through eating breakfast, we bought 
a copy of the New York Times and found that it was edited by Roby 
Gibbs. Dominating the front page was a picture of the newly crowned 
Miss America, Betty Lou Reeps. She had just signed a contract with 
MGM. 

Our team decided to take in a movie at the Plaza. We were sur- 
prised to find that Bobby Queen was the owner of this large theatre. Af- 
ter talking to him , we went into the movie and there was Carolyn Black- 
well playing in a love scene opposite Gene Davis, the new Hollywood Sen- 
sation. 

During an especially exciting scene, a lady sitting directly in front 
of us fainted, and we called the theatre's private nurse. When she spoke 
we immediatly recognized her voice as being that of Betty Jean Holli- 
field. In no time at all the lady was revived by Betty Jean. 

After winning our game in New York, we received a telegram from 
the French All-Stars, inviting us to play them in Paris. 

As we were boarding a beautiful pas senger ship, ''The Queen Mary," 
Paul Brooks, the Ail-American Baseball Player, who was just returning 
from a tour of the world, was getting off the ship. 

After several days on the ocean, we arrived at an English port. 

Since we were to be in Europe for a few weeks before our scheduled 
game, we visited some of the historic spots. While on a tour through 
Oxford University , we saw Mary Helen Ballew who was continuing there 
her study of English Literature. 

The University of Paris was our next stop. There was Barbara Me- 
redith still studying the French Language. She is going to teach foreign 
language at Wellesley. 

We won our game with the French All-Stars, then we came back to 
the U.S.A. 

On our way to our home state, we passed through Nashville, Tennes- 
see. We found that Weyma Woody had taken Minnie Pearl's place on the 
Grand Old Opera. 

Upon our arrival in North Carolina, we discovered that Roy Dean 
Comer had made quite a name for himself in the State Hospital for the 
Insane. Oh, don't get us wrong, he's a psychiatrist. His very capable 
secretary is Donnie McKinney. 

When we got to Pleasant Gardens, we decided to visit our Alma Ma- 
ter. A new elementary school building had been built and Hazel Poteat 
was the Principal. The first great change she made was a complete de- 
struction of all rules and regulations. 

After comparing our class with all the others, we find that we are 
the most outstanding class ever to graduate from Pleasant Gardens. 
Each member has made his mark in the world, be it good or bad.
